The Elmwood Bistro and Program
What we eat has a profound effect on our mood, behaviour, health, growth and even our ability to concentrate. It’s not surprising that research has shown that healthy, balanced meals improve students’ concentration, attention, energy levels and academic performance. We kept this top-of-mind when developing our food service program at Elmwood.
Our experienced and creative Bistro staff have a range of menus planned that are delicious, healthy, and all made from scratch. Many of our ingredients are supplied by local farmers and our own organic garden. In addition to hot meals, the Bistro also offers a variety of freshly prepared snacks and à la carte items, with gluten free and vegetarian options available every day.
The Junior School Meal Plan includes a main meal and drink as well as morning and afternoon healthy snacks. The Middle and Senior School Meal Plan has slightly larger portions and includes a choice of main meal, a salad, a drink and a choice of dessert.
The Bistro is supplied by many local producers, including: O’Brien Beef Farm, Suntech Tomato Farm, Mariposa Farms, Le Coprin Mushroom Farm, Jambican Farm, Beking Eggs, The Whalesbone Sustainable Fish and Hall’s Apple Orchard.
The Bistro staff, in cooperation with the Health and Safety Committee, have worked hard to develop a Bistro Program that will offer healthy and delicious food to students and convenience to families while still ensuring adherence to the current public health requirements and guidelines.
